Laura Carmona

Would love to try our hands at creating extra large crochets like these handmade rugs created by Cordoba-based artisan, Laura Carmona. This business major has always enjoyed developing her creativity through handicrafts. Influenced by her grandmother’s crochet blankets the artist decided to acquire the skill. It was the discovery and love of cotton fabric yarn that launched her thriving enterprise.

You can follow the artist on her website, Facebook and Instagram. Some of her items and patterns can be purchased on her Etsy shop, Susi Miu.

Corkshoes

CorkshoesWe love the simple geometric details on these handcrafted totes. These market totes are sold under the Japanese creator and brand name, Corkshoes. The bags are lined with linen cloth and includes an inside pocket. They also make a few matching pouches. Found them at online handmade sites, Iichi and Tetote Market.
